Of course, this is far from an exhaustive list. But it does provide a clear sense of the breadth of our experience. We are equipped to help if you've been hurt in an accident.

Consequences of These Injuries

Every injury is unique, of course, but one common element of these injuries is that they dramatically and negatively affect the lives of those who suffer them. The long-term consequences of catastrohic personal injuries are medical, financial and psychological in nature.

Our clients with these injuries have had to deal with:

  • An inability to work and earn income

How are Catastrophic Personal Injury Cases Different from Typical Personal Injury Cases?

Catastrophic personal injury cases involve injuries that can impact a person for the rest of their life. Standard personal injury cases may involve serious injury, but none as serious as those that will impact a person’s abilities, appearance, and comfort for years to come.

While only a small fraction of personal injury cases end up in court, many catastrophic personal injury cases go to trial. This takes longer than agreeing to a settlement, but often results in more significant compensation.

How Do I Know if I Have A Case?

If you have sustained a catastrophic injury, you may be entitled to compensation. This is true even if you played a role in your accident. The best way to determine if you have a case is by consulting with a qualified and experienced personal injury lawyer.

At Watkins, Lourie, Roll & Chance, our award-winning attorneys have decades of experience helping victims of serious and catastrophic injuries get justice. Give us a call to schedule a free case review and learn the best path forward for your claim.

How Much is My Case Worth?

Without first meeting with you, it is impossible to determine what your case is worth, but one thing is certain: it is likely worth more than insurance is willing to pay.

Before you accept an offer from an insurance company, speak with an attorney. Once you have accepted an offer from insurance, you will no longer be able to seek compensation through legal action.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Catastrophic Injury Lawyer?

It should not cost anything to hire a catastrophic injury lawyer. Payment for legal services is taken from your final verdict or settlement. If you do not prevail in your case, you will not pay your attorney anything at all.

Be sure to select a personal injury firm that works on a contingency fee basis and make sure the fee does not accrue interest. During your initial consultation, ask what percentage the firm will take if the case is won (33% is standard), and consult with several attorneys if needed to find one that you feel comfortable with and confident in.  

We take your catastrophic injury seriously. Our lawyers firmly believe in pursuing justice and compensation, but we also believe in doing all we can to help you while we pursue your case. We assist our clients in receiving the medical attention they need so they can focus on recovering while we handle the complicated legal matters.
